BioMapper-GIS Toolkit for Ecological Modelling

Posted on May 18, 2008 By : Mizake Laziaf

For you that work in GIS and Ecological field work, BioMaper is a kit of GIS and statistical tools designed to build habitat suitability (HS) models and maps for any kind of animal or plant. It is centred on the Ecological Niche Factor Analysis (ENFA) that allows to compute HS models without the need of absence data.

Biomapper can deal you with the following tasks:

  • Preparing the ecogeographical maps in order to use them as input for the ENFA (e.g. computing frequency of occurrence map, standardisation, masking, etc.)
  • Exploring and comparing them by mean of descriptive statistics (distribution analysis, etc.)
  • Computing the Ecological Niche Factor Analysis and exploring its output.
  • Computing a Habitat Suitability map
  • Evaluating  it

Biomapper autonomous run and can transparently work in conjunction because of it uses the same file format as the GIS software .

BioMapper is Free and you can
